<strong>LOGAN—</strong> Single tickets for the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre’s 21st season went on sale last week, and Julie Hollist, member of the Company’s board of directors said the season includes four main stage productions in repertory – two operas and two musicals.
Hollist said more than 250 musicians, performers and crew members will come from renowned stages across the nation to the historic Ellen Eccles Theatre in downtown Logan.
“They are doing a couple of Broadway favorites. “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” by Andrew Lloyd Weber, which is just so much fun, then also “Fiddler on the Roof,” and Michael Ballam will be staring as Tevye on that show,” Hollist said.
“Then they are doing Verdi’s “Otello,” which is of course the story of Shakespeare’s “Othello,” and then “The Flying Dutchman,” which is actually a story that people will probably recognize from “The Pirates of the Caribbean” from Johnny Depp.”
Hollist said tickets are also on sale for backstage tours, breakfast with the stars, literary seminars, classes where interactive courses will be taught by industry experts – including a lecture by Pulitzer Prize winner Sheldon Harnick, creator of “Fiddler on the Roof.” Tickets are available at the Dansante building, which is located at 59 South 100 West in Logan.
